Cafeteria & Retail Store

Since first established by Congress in 1946, the 3,000+ customer service associates of VCS have taken great personal and professional pride in serving the best customers in the nation -- the Veteran patients of the U. S. Armed Forces and those who provide for their care. We accomplish this by providing quality merchandise, food, vending, and related services at reasonable prices in VA medical centers across the country. Today, most people refer to VCS as the "Canteen."
